Spark’s Start-up Competition: A chance to win 10k & start your business


Do you live in a conflict-affected country or a fragile state? Do you have a business idea or an existing business under 1 year old that can contribute to rebuilding or supporting your local community? SPARK has arranged a startup competition for you and is offering the chance to win up to €10,000.00 to get your business idea started.

SPARK is a Dutch NGO that supports young entrepreneurs to start their businesses in fragile states and today they have joined forces with The Young Advisory Group to arrange a startup competition. They are calling all entrepreneurs in fragile states to apply for the Rebuilding Futures, a competition for your chance to win up to €10,000 startup grant and a trip to the Netherlands for their annual conference, IGNITE 2017.

So if you think you meet the criteria, join their competition and see if you can win. Finalists will be invited to the Netherlands for a two-day trip (Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 December, 2017) to pitch their business ideas, network with the Dutch private sector, attend the international IGNITE conference and the winner will receive a startup grant of up to 10,000.00 euros.

Go on their website and fill in the application form. Deadline is October 22, 2017. Good luck!
